Question about Televison & Video

3 Answers

I have three Alba CTV840/A 14" colour television sets purchased in 1996. These TV's each have a single 75 Ohm Antenna input socket. Please advise me, is there an adapter/modem available which will enable these TVs to receive the digital signal when the terrestial signal ceases next year. Many thanks

Fm aerial connection ?


Both of my Marantz receivers use a 75 ohm coax input. The receivers included a single wire antenna that simply plugs in. The plug is suitable for coax cable going to an external antenna. You can also get a small 75 to 300 ohm transformer that will allow you to use a dipole or other common indoor FM antenna.

Wont receive digital channels after scan non found


Hi Patrick,

You must have a UHF / VHF antenna connected to the antenna input of the TV to scan for digital channels. Most new TV's have a threaded, round 75 ohm coax cable connection for this - but yours might even have connection consisting of 2 small screws to connect a 300 ohm twin lead antenna cable instead. Use which ever yours has.

If you are using this input for the input of a cable TV "set top box" (STB), satellite STB, or similar, you will likely only find a single analog channel (Ch3 or Ch4) after a scan as the scan will only find the output of the STB - which is usually on Ch3 or Ch4 - and not be able to scan the STB channels.

Additionally, the antenna input of the TV will only provide a standard definition picture if connected via coax cable from the STB. It will only provide a high definition picture if connected to a UHF / VHF antenna and a broadcaster is close enough for its signal to be received by the antenna. The way to obtain the best possible picture (high definition) when using an STB for tuning channels is to use an HDMI cable between the STB and TV. An HDMI cable will provide the very best picture and audio signals from the STB to the TV; all over a single cable and is the recommended practice.

I hope this helps!

I moved and cant figure out how to hook my 4030 channel master antenna up again. I have a converter box and hd toshiba tv


INSTALLATION

Channel Master by PCT indoor antennas are designed to provide optimum reception of

UHF / VHF and FM signals. These antennas have 75 ohm outputs, which allow simple,

hassle-free connections to today's newer TV sets that have 75 ohm F type connector

inputs.

Simply attach one end of the supplied 6' cable with F connectors to the output of the

antenna (Fig.1). Attach the other end of the cable to the input of the TV set or VCR

(Fig. 2). Some adjustment of the antenna might be necessary for optimum viewing.

Model CM-4030 includes a built-in amplifier and separate power supply.

1. Follow the same steps as above for antenna to TV / VCR hookup. Note : Model

CM-4030 also allows for two set / VCR hookups with its unique dual output feature.

2. Insert the power injector into the back of the antenna (Fig. 3). Plug in the power
transformer to the closest electrical outlet (Fig. 4).

The 75 ohm type use plugs and cables commonly used for TV aerials and Satellite dishes.
The 300 ohm type uses screw clip terminals where you attach a coloured cable.
All shown here: The FM socket with the thread on, uses a Satellite connector plug.

HAVE A MEGALOOP+ hearing aid SYSTEM. THE SOUND FROM A NEW DIGITAL TV IS DISTORTED CAN I ALSO PLUG IN A MICROPHONE TO USE WITH THE NORMAL SCART ATTATCHMENT IF SO WIRING INSTRUCTION PLEASE


I would imagine the level is too high. Does your loop amplifier not have a sensitivity control?
You could come out of the scart socket but check for a headphone volume control first!

The connection standard requires that the pins are utilised in the following manner:
